Two years after their triumphant performance on the Festival main stage, the Montreal folk quartet of the hour returns with a collaboration as surprising as it is alluring: the Barr Brothers share the stage with Malian musical duo Bassekou Kouyaté and Amy Sacko for a unique musical conversation. Opening act: the Montreal "chamber rock" ensemble, Esmerine.
For reasons out of our control, Bassekou Kouyate and Amy Sacko are unable to make it to this side of the world for the planned collaborative concert. In their absence, Mamadou Koita, Sadio Sissoko and Joe Grass, some extraordinary musicians, will help make these shows special and unique.
